2014 BLOG – DAY 1 new year, new you!

1 Jan

It is 2014. Officially! And we are back to DAY 1.

New year. New promise.

To ring in 2014 I am reflecting on what my heart desires.
What does your heart desire? 

Do you want more love, more vacation, more money, more fun?
Maybe you want less worries, less weight, less stress?

What is your heart’s calling?
How will 2014 unfold for you? 

Over here, I am crafting a new promise.
This will be the 4th year blogging.
Really? Really. Four years!

Believe me, I have toyed with giving up.
Especially after last night when my sister texted me to report there was a terrible link on my blog. She said one of the links led to a porn site. WHAT???!!

I gasped for air. I ran to my computer. I checked the link. It went to the right place. It was fine.

Then I checked the link on my iPhone.
Yep. It led to a straight up “not so nice” website. I was mortified. I immediately deleted the links. I thought I was hacked! I changed my passwords. I scrambled to figure it out. (Turns out it was the other site that was hacked and I am okay.)

WHEW!
But what a way to start the year off with a bang.

I must admit there have been many times when I have considered putting my blog aside and channeling my time into other activities. Last night was no exception.

But in the end, I know this is true: blogging everyday keeps me on track. 

It’s a system.
It’s a routine.
And there’s no better way to stay focused than to make a promise — and make yourself accountable to it. 

So here we go 2014!
Blog and all.

Tomorrow I will share my new promise. 
And I hope you share yours too!

More tomorrow.
Lovemore {fearless}
Jamie

Day 17: new dresses and new dreams

17 Jan

Oh, happy day, indeed.
Today was Vision Day with Debbie Phillips.   A day to plan, dream, focus and create new goals for the year ahead and celebrate the year that has passed.

It was also a day for me to try on something new — a new dress.
As I surveyed my closet this morning, and stared down the clothes I have worn over and over again for the past year, I yearned to wear something new.

And then I saw the new dress.
I haven’t had a new dress in my possession for over a year now.  This new dress came to me in the form of a Christmas present (thanks Jill!).

Just slipping into this sunny number made me feel like a new person, taking a step into a new year.  In a very subtle way, it made me feel ready for new dreams too.

Because clothes are powerful.
It’s no secret that I love clothes.  I love how they make me feel, how they change my attitude and how they define my day.

But, dreams are more powerful.
And I love them even more — for how they make me feel, how they change my attitude and how they define not just my day, but the entire year ahead.

If there is anything I learned from last year, it is the importance of investing in myself, in my future and in my dreams (instead of my wardrobe!).

How are you investing in your dreams?

Here’s to your dreams, goals, plans and purposeful living as we take on this new year.

(And maybe, just maybe, there will be a new dress along the way too!)
